Weigh-In Wednesday: The SDoS Week 6 - the Holy Cow It's Hot Edition

I run with the Sisterhood

Short and sweet post this week.  I'm working my tail off unfortunately not literally doing some coverage therapy and I'm pooped.  It is also freaking HOT here in West Michigan this week.  Temps in the 90's with humidity between 50 and 85% (my run this morning was so hot I felt like I could wring out the air).  Because of the heat and the holiday weekend, I did not get the results I would have liked on the scale. 

Here are my stats for the week.

Weight on June 23, 2009:  165.8
Challenge Starting Weight: 146.8
Last week: 144.2
This week: 145.2
Change: up1.0
Loss For Challenge: 1.6
Total Pounds Gone: 20.6

Yep, I gained back the pound I lost last week.  Suck.  I really made pretty good choices most of the weekend and tracked everyday except the 4th.  I found out my favorite summer beer is almost 200 calories, which was a shocker, but I counted every one of those calories, dammit.  I think it's the heat and humidity that has done me in this week.  I feel like a bloated and frizzy mess.  One benefit to all this crazy heat: the Lands End swimsuit I won from Shrinking Jeans finally made an appearance this weekend.  I even went swimming.  For those who know, I am a decent swimmer but more of a "relax by the side of the pool with a cold one" girl.  More about my great new suit in another post :)

My 10k is a week from Saturday and I'm panicked about the hot/humid weather.  3 miles on Monday and 2 miles this morning in this crap just about killed me.  6 is going to be hell.  Literally, I'm afraid.  Granted, this is Michigan, and you know what they say:  "If you don't like the weather, wait a minute, it'll change." 

So how did everyone else do this week?  Was the scale nice to you or did you want to chuck it out the window like I did?  Link up over at the Sisterhood and let us know!


  1. OMG. I totally gained a pound this week, too. Are you me? Are we living in parallel universes? 144 baby :(

  2. Also, you'll rock that 10K. There's just something about that rush on race day.....

  3. 200 calories for one beer? Wow. But then again I have no idea how many calories are in the drinks I drink...other than Coke. You are going to do great on your 10K. Because, even if your time is not what you want it to be, you will be out there and giving it 100%. That's all that matters. You will have banked 6.2 awesome miles or 6.2 crappy miles, but 6.2 miles nonetheless.

  4. Who knows what the weather will be a week from Saturday? Maybe it will be gorgeous for you.

  5. Dude, I memorized most beers (and am pretty damned good at guessing if I don't know. Go ahead..test me.) because I was curious at how many calories I was drinking. I was shocked too.

    Onto a new week!

  6. April, I don't doubt you for a second! I was shocked Daily Plate had Oberon in its database. 192 calories or 170 calories (it's in there 2x). I err on the high side.
    Christy, we are clearly channelling some weird voodoo!

  7. Well... Isn't that how holiday weekends go sometimes?!?! I am amazed by the calories in some of my favorites that I would never have guessed. Like the difference between a vanilla cone and a McFlurry at McDonalds... Like 400 calories different! Nevertheless, you are doing great on your journey and this is officially a NEW week!

  8. you've got the 10K in the bag! and if its hell in michigan this weekend then reward yourself with a frosty cold one! (after you've properly hydrated with water of course)

  9. You'll lose that measly pound in no time!! Good luck on the 10k!! That's AWESOME!

  10. Thanks Tiffany, Brooke, and Xristinejoyce-I'm sure I'll loose this pound just like I've lost it about 5 times already :) Up and Down, Up and Down - the story of my life!

  11. Here's hoping to cooler weather next weekend for your race! You can do it step at a time!
